Vanderbilt is on the board for the Class of 2025 with an early commitment.

Clark Lea’s program picked up its first commitment for 2025 with a public pledge from blue-chip running back Caden Knightwood on Saturday.

Out of Wynnewood (Oklahoma), Knighten has picked up 7 scholarship offers in his recruitment. He chose Vandy over offers from Colorado, Michigan State, USC and others.

Knighten is listed at 6-feet, 190 pounds. He’s ranked by On3 as a 4-star prospect, the No. 3 Oklahoma recruit, No. 15 running back and No. 164 player overall nationally in the 2025 recruiting class. Knighten does not yet have rankings from 247Sports, Rivals or ESPN.
